A once-popular detour around Roane Street is being resurrected.
City Manager Kevin Helms has been working with the state to address replacing the bridge at Margrave Street, which was torn down in 2011.
“I’m ready for that to happen,” said Mayor Chris Mason about the news.
“It was something as simple as that, having somebody full time to go talk to them,” Mason said.
Years ago Harriman officials balked at added expenses of moving utilities at the bridge, and eventually the bridge was torn down.
